We are two activists, writers, feminists, and Europeans from Berlin. Our work focuses on Europe, youth empowerment, gender equality, and social justice.
Ever since meeting at college in the United States in 2008, the two of us talked about society and how it may be improved. What started as late night chats on social imbalances, political systems, philosophy, and history turned over the years into a full-time commitment. While we continue to think and ponder current political questions and problems, we are also constantly looking for ways to carry our thoughts and ideas into a wider world. So far we have published in various national and international newspapers, have presented our ideas and proposal on TV, panel discussions and conferences, and are in regular touch with representatives of NGOs, foundations, ministries, the German government, as well as countless (young) change-makers from across Europe.
We dedicate our lives to creating a more just and egalitarian European society.
